Full description
Take a half-day tour to the charming village of St. Emilion, and sample a selection of wines. The history of the village goes back to medieval times, and the whole jurisdiction is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its natural landscape. You will be traveling in small groups and on arrival will take a tour of the village, made up of fascinating Romanesque churches and ruins that stretch along the steep and narrow streets. It was the Romans that introduced wine making to the village as far back as the 2nd century. Reminders of the Roman techniques of wine planting can be seen in some of the estates, such as Chateau Bellevue, owned by the world famous Angelus winery. The village was named after the monk Émilian, a traveling confessor, who settled in a hermitage carved into the rock in the 8th-Century. Follow your guide for a walking tour of the village to discover all the main attractions.  Then, enjoy a visit and wine tasting session in a Classified Growth Chateau of the Saint Emilion wine region. During the visit, you will learn all there is to know about the estate as well as the techniques used to produce this world-famous wine. From here return to Bordeaux.

    Wonderful trip. On time, great driving, very informative. Emily was fantastic, very friendly and hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed the day. Perfect length of time and a nice visit to the Chateaux with very friendly tour guide. No pressure to buy wines and a really nice atmosphere. We got lucky with the weather too! Overall, just fantastic. Merci!

    In principle it was an excellent experience, but I was disappointed that we only visited one vineyard since every tour like this should visit two. And we arrived back at 13.00 even though the information told us that the tour was from 9 util 14.00. Otherwise, the guide Helene was very good and was obviously extremely skilled, as well as a very pleasant person.

    Really enjoyed the overall experience. Our guide Karim was outstanding. He made the experience even better, great humor and very knowledgeable. The village was such a cool place to walk around for an hour. The only nitpicky comment I have is that we only got to try 3 wines at the vineyard, perhaps in the US is different but we are used to getting to try 4-5 different types of wines. Definitely recommend!
